Five-Headed Power Attack Blue-Eyes Standard Red Is For Destruction Blue-Eyes Modified Power Red-Eyes Supremacy Dragonmaid Service

With the likes of Seto Kaiba and his Blue-Eyes White Dragon dominating the Yu-Gi-Oh! meta since his introduction, it makes sense for more dragons to appear as the staple monster types of a Yu-Gi-Oh! series rival. As such, in a game like Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel that combines multiple playstyles, it makes sense for dragons to dominate the meta in some shape or form.

However, while the Blue-Eyes White Dragon is an easy addition to such a list, a lot of other Dragon Deck builds may dominate matches more frequently than players think. With the right combination of cards, certain dragon-themed Master Duel decks may win in matches before players even notice any threats.

Five-Headed Power Attack

Thanks to the “Power of the Dragon” starter deck in Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel, players have an easy access to a dragon-themed deck geared to help their first Yu-Gi-Oh! matches. However, players can actually count on some card changes to transform this deck into a powerhouse worthy of Ranked Matches.

At its core, this deck counts on the likes of Maxx “C” and Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring to delay whatever strategy opponents try to dish out to counter the player’s assault. This tactic is relevant, especially since this deck relies on Dragon’s Mirror to access the ever-powerful Five-Headed Dragon for finishers. Alternatively, players can get quick access to Extra Deck monsters for that extra kick if they combo Nebula Dragon and Blue-Eyes White Dragon.

Red Is For Destruction

Card game enthusiasts know that the color red is commonly associated with aggressive builds, courtesy of Magic: The Gathering color typing. However, this archetype also applies in Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel, especially easy-combo builds that rely on overpowering foes with attacks before they can strike back. This Yu-Gi-Oh! build capitalizes on Synchro and XYZ Summon mechanics to secure powerful summons on the get-go, aided by decent control cards to ensure protections from enemy effects.

In terms of specifics, this deck relies on three core monsters to stop the enemy’s offensive. Firstly, tapping into Hot Red Dragon Archfiend King Calamity immediately stops enemies from activating effects for a whole turn. Meanwhile, the powerful Yu-Gi-Oh! card Red Supernova Dragon becomes a strong wiper as it can banish itself as well as the rest of the opponent’s cards. Lastly, the Red Rising Dragon can serve as an ever-reliable aggressive monster.

Blue-Eyes Modified Power

Thanks to the “Power of Dragons” starter deck, players of Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel do have an easy access to a dragon-themed deck to rain down hell on enemies. However, Yu-Gi-Oh! players looking for that white lightning punch can tweak this deck a bit and give it a nice Seto Kaiba touch, transforming it into an accessible Blue-Eyes deck that players can spam Ranked Matches with powerful Yu-Gi-Oh! cards to wipe opponents quickly.

At its core, this deck relies on Blue-Eyes Chaos MAX Dragon for firepower, as well as cards that provide easy combos to access this behemoth. These include the likes of Buster Whelp of the Destruction Swordsman, Sage with Eyes of Blue, and the White Stone of Ancients that give faster access to devastatingly-strong dragon cards. Likewise, the deck has strong fetch potential as well as negates to ensure opponents can’t counter the player’s dragon-summoning streak.

Red-Eyes Supremacy

Whereas Kaiba and his Blue-Eyes White Dragon card against Yugi and his Dark Magician serves as perhaps the most iconic rivalry in Yu-Gi-Oh! fandom, Joey Wheeler and his Red-Eyes Black Dragon come as a close second in terms of nasty powersets, both in the anime and in Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel meta. While the Blue-Eyes symbolize sheer power, the Red-Eyes deck mark everlasting potential, and this is what this deck does.

Dragonmaid Service

What’s better than having a team of maids and a cluster of dragons at someone’s employ – having Dragonmaids! There’s actually a Yu-Gi-Oh! monster archetype designed around dishing out combos to achieve a variety of effects, and their synergy works well as a Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel build. At its core, the Dragonmaids can not only decimate enemy forces but also negate a lot of their counters. Not to mention, their cards are relatively easy to cast with the right combinations.

In the case of main plays, Dragonmaid Sheou not only possesses decent negates but also becomes a rather imposing element in the battlefield. Likewise, House Dragonmaid can help summon other Dragonaids from the GY. With the right combos, this Dragonmaid deck can bounce back from wipes thanks to resummon tricks.
